Work on my 1962 Eko 500 pretty much stalled after the replacement tuning machines came in. Ima fix it later this Summer, as soon as I’ve ordered the last couple spare parts, and a fresh set of frets for my early 1970s, nameless SG copy.
Been thinking of doing a mini-site of sorts. “Microformats That Work,” with real-life markup examples and tips ’n’ tricks. (I mean, there’s the wiki and I know I’m able to edit it, and DRY and such, but it is kind of hard to navigate.) Maybe that: just examples, no discussion. Like, a minimal example and one that goes all out, per post type. And possible, “traditional,” RSS alternatives.

While many web developers use high end devices and have fast internet connections, many of the folks who use the things we build do not.

We’re taking a country that should be a land of plenty, the ultimate positive-sum game, and we’re turning it into a zero-sum game.

Looks like I’m no longer the only one generating Featured Images on the fly, in PHP. (Also: social media images are useless, and wasteful.)

I love these posts. (I’m old, too.)
Looks like it’s not just mf2 parsers that move images (i.e., if they come with a
u-photo class) around, but that Indigenous, too, does this. For every image. I mean, I now get that “photo posts” get a “special treatment,” but simply moving all images to the bottom of a post can be rather confusing, especially when there’s parts in the text that explicitly mention, e.g., “the image above.” One more reason to stick to a web-based reader. (Note: I do use the app, like, all the time, for its Micropub capabilities.)
#TIL that IndieWeb “photo” (and “video”) posts can’t just be “articles,” too. I mean, they can, but you gotta be super careful because reader apps are going to do things to these entries.
Up to a point, acquiring more money is a necessary evil. We all need a roof over our heads and food in our bellies. But past that, money is an empty goal that can only be at the center of a meaningless life.

Like a sequencer, like those found inside a DAW? Where you draw notes on a “piano roll” and play them back to hear the sampled, or synthesized, sounds?
[T]he idea of a “reverse music visualiser” seems more achievable than it was when I wrote this post.

I love that we’ll soon be able to build great-looking sites using a single theme and a few block-based templates. That said, look at this mess. We have CSS Grid, dangit!
Gotta love Laravel’s
First SVG icon library I’ve seen—I think—that includes separate “Refresh,” “Reload,” and “Repost” icons.
